Hmm I wont ever drink it. Then again I havent drunk milk in over 20 years, I use a soy equivalent instead.
Think about it, why drink milk in the first place?... what animal naturally drinks milk beyond infancy? (disregard casts and dogs, since they do so
for the high fat content since their food habits are directed towards that sort of thing, as are most predators). But what im getting at is, outside
of infancy, no animal seeks milk from some other lactating creature... the mother only produces milk for a short period of time to bolster the babies
But we humans turn it upside down and drink it our entire lives.
Throw on top of that as humans we drink the milk of another species, which in its self is kinda disgusting, since such milk wasnt meant for human
consumption in the first place, but a bovines.
We dont need milk... period, and we sure as dont need milk from some genetically fiddled with cows. But dairy has been a huge economical driving force
for a hundred years so its not going anywhere, anytime soon.
On a side note found out last tonight, that farmers in my country do a practice where they actually induce mother cows to have premature babies so
they start to produce milk earlier in order to get more milk production.
Its bad enough when we cart their calf's off to be turned into steak when the mother cows dry up (the calf is their purely to keep the cow
lactating). But now they are effectively abort the calf (which cant be used for meat then) to get a few more weeks of milk production... I mean how
sick are we as humans.
